This web site/blog is the personal reflections of Peter Goodwin as he delivers community based IT courses and training in the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire areas.
Technology changes human activity, it has since the discovery of the the flint ax. The changes in technology in the last 20 or 30 years will probably be seen by history as the period that changed human behaviour more than any other. Just my opion so I am open to being pursuaded otherwise.
However so many people who would benefit from these changes are being left behind because they dont have the skills, knowledge or even courage to turn on a computer.
This website does 2 things:-
- It forces me to keep my WordPress skills up to date which is very important since nothing on this site, including hosting etc is paid for (contact me if you want to know more!)
- It is my way of passing on my experiences of trying to help people excluded from the benefits of our technology in the hope that it will encourage others to realise that it is never to late to learn.
I would love to hear from people who are either teaching ICT in communities like myself, are on the receiving end of ICT teaching or from any one who just has an interest in spreading the benefits of technology to everyone in our society, not just the tech savvy.
